Summary
On April 15, 2013, two homemade bombs exploded near the finish line of the Boston marathon, killing 3 people and wounding more than 264 others. In the ensuing manhunt, Tamerlan Tsarnaev died, and his younger brother, Dzhokhar, was captured and ultimately charged on 30 federal counts. Yet long after the bombings and the terror they sowed, what we still haven’t learned is why. Why did the American Dream go so wrong for two immigrants? How did such a nightmare come to pass? Russian-American journalist Masha Gessen follows the family from their beginnings as descendants of ethnic Chechens deported to Central Asia to their futile attempts to make a life for themselves in one war-torn locale after another and then, as new émigrés, in the disorienting world of Cambridge, Massachusetts. Most crucially, she reconstructs the struggle between assimilation and alienation that ensued for each of the brothers, incubating a deadly sense of mission. And she traces how such a split in identity can fuel the metamorphosis into a new breed of homegrown terrorist, with feet on American soil but sense of self elsewhere
